Same Sex Wedding Venues in NSW

LGBT Wedding Venues in NSW

Most same sex wedding venues in NSW don't advertise themselves as such, because most reception venues (certainly the ones on this site) are naturally inclusive of all love and don't think to mention it. But if you're specifically searching for LGBT wedding venues, it would be mighty helpful to know which venues are jumping up & down with their hand in the air to host gay and lesbian weddings. Which is why we've created this list.

All of the ceremony and reception venues on this list are LGBTQIA friendly and welcome gay marriages in all denominations. From coastal resorts to regional farms to secret urban locations, NSW has loads of gay and lesbian friendly wedding venues and they are more than a little bit excited to host same sex weddings on their grounds.

If you're looking for a place to get married where warmth, acceptance and love prevail, the below wedding venues are the places for you. All of these ceremony and reception venues actively promote themselves as same sex wedding venues (if not on their own website, then on others) and almost all have already had the pleasure of marrying gay and lesbian couples in their spaces. 

Finding the perfect wedding venue can be one of the most difficult planning tasks of any wedding, but armed with this list your venue hunt is off to a cracking start. In no particular order, here are the most recommended same sex friendly wedding venues in NSW.
